. >> it's stunning for mitt romney to be so underppared to fight 's hheeblems as . the primary candidate. romney only started making frequent appearances in the state a week before the iowa caucuses. by then, it was too late. and he lost a tight race. romney's campaign should have refocused their efforts, but instead, they find themselveses rsloere cast today.t president obama is moving in for the final knockout punch. the obama campaign unveiled a full two-minute television video ad today with president directly addressing viewers. the ad is airing in four swing states, including iowa. it has the look and feel of a candidate's closing argument. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle cls. read my plan. compare it to governor roey's decide for yourself. thanks for listening. >> the president introduced the theme of economic patriotism into his stump speech at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time

, this provision that mitt keeps talking about, lowering income tax s, that's not really attractive to him and those dependent on government. >> many people who pay no federal income tax already plan on voting for mitt romney. more on that later in this program. now, according to romney, these voters are dependent on government, so they will never stroet for a guy like him who wants to shrink government. what about groups romney is courting like seniors? >> seniors are, of course, people i'm getting in large numbers. i have great support from seniors because they're unhappy with the fact that president obama's obama care cuts medicare by $716 billion. >> so let's get this straight. if you're an obama supporter and you use government programs, mitt romney has no use for you. but if your vote is up for grabs and you use a government program like medicare, mitt romney thinks, hey, you're the greatest. for those of us who have been paying attention to mitt romney for the past two years, none of this is really shocking. romney let us know many times what he really thinks about people who us

that ad you showed where he id, both of u a me s families, that was almost an entirely defensive ad. and that quinnipiac/"new york times" poll showed why. there was a question in there that asked, does obama, does romney care about the middle class, the rich, the poor, or everyone equally? most polls the that give fou ceua gtt answers. 58% of the people in ohio said that mitt romney's policies favored the rich. by contrast, 59% said that obama's policies favored either everybody equally or the middle at17oint gap. and i think the auto rescue is part of it. those bain ads are part of it. ken blackwell, the former republican secretary of state was on cnn today. and he said it was jus like '04. bush roughed up kerry in the summer and kerry nev ve an dt romney will never recover, but the implication was, romney's in a heap of trouble. >> chris redfern, who is the chairman of the democratic party in ohio also with us tonight. chris. a very untenable position that governor kasich is being placed in, to go out and talk about the ecomy when is a pitiv for erndt ey had nothing to do about it
